UPDATED TO REFLECT 2011 LEGISLATIVE AMENDMENTS
The Florida Statutes provide a ready source of definitions for use in LDRs. See the article Definitions for more on other sources and on writing LDR definitions. The definitions in the LDRs do not have to be exactly the same as those found in the statutes, but it is less confusing if they are at least similar. In the case of definitions for processes involving state review, it is probably wise to make the definitions the same as the applicable process in the statutes.
This PDF document (Relevant Florida Statutes Definitions) lists several of the definitions used in the statutes. Some of the terms have several different definitions. With these terms, and with all the definitions, the source of the definition should be reviewed to understand context of the definition and what meaning it is trying to convey.
